bettyskitchen's picture
Ingredients
  Green beans 1 Pound, washed and broken into pieces about 1-inch long
  Small new potatoes 1 Pound (Red Pontiac Variety)
  Vegetable oil 2 Tablespoon (Canola Oil)
  Salt 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon, divided
  Water 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs) (Or As Needed)
Directions

Place 1 pound of prepared green beans in a medium-sized pot. Add 2 tablespoons vegetable oil and 1 teaspoon salt. Pour water over the beans, until they are just covered. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat and simmer for about 2 hours. Place new potatoes in with the (almost) cooked green beans. Add an additional ½ teaspoon salt, and additional water to cover the beans and potatoes. Bring back to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low, and cook until potatoes are done. Pour into a serving bowl and serve immediately. If there are leftovers, they may be refrigerated and re-heated the next day. They are actually even better tasting the second time around! Enjoy!!! --Betty
